Learning the piano is fun

The piano allows you to play melody and accompaniament together.
There are a vast number of pieces to play in many musical genres.
What would you like to learn to play?

    INSTRUMENT
    Do your have a piano? All students need to have a piano at home. For beginners and intermediate level students a digital piano (fulled sized keyboard with weighted keys) is acceptable but a well maintained acoustic piano is preferable.

    PRACTISE
    Do you or your child have time to practise? All students are expected to practise between lessons to make steady progress and maintain motivation. At least five times a week is ideal, starting at 5 - 10 minutes for young beginners.

    PERFORMING
    Are you a confident performer? For most people performing is not easy and takes practice. Every term there is an opportunity to perform and listen to what other students having been learning. These friendly informal "Performance Practice" sessions are usually for students only, but once a year family and friends are invited to a recital.
